    Tau Game Lodge

    Set in the Madikwe Game Reserve near South Africa’s northern border with Botswana, Tau Safari Lodge offers a five-star getaway in the serenity of nature’s untouched magnificence. The interior spaces are designed to reflect the natural outdoor surroundings with thatch roofs, natural color palettes, and eco materials.

    Tau Safari Lodge offers five-star accommodation to a total of 60 guests in eco-chic chalets that are spread out in U-formation. The layout not only offers excellent privacy but also exceptional views of animals approaching the waterhole. One of the Standard Chalets have been equipped for wheelchair access.

    The lodge main area features a semi-open-air lounge, bar, and dining area that overlook the waterhole. Delectable buffet breakfasts and lunches can be savoured in the dining area or outdoor deck while dinners are a celebration under starlit skies in one of the cosy bomas.

    When not viewing wildlife from your private suite or the lodge’s viewing lounge, you’ll be heading out on a game drive with an expert ranger to spot the Super Seven (Big Five, endangered African wild dog, and cheetah) among a host of other wildlife and bird species.

    There are two communal lodge pools to cool down on hot summer days or simply enjoy a sun lounger and waterhole view with a cocktail in hand. The lodge also offers a kids club, conference-, and wedding facilities.

    Tau Safari Lodge offers an opulent African Spa experience where you can completely unwind in tranquil surroundings. Here you will indulge your senses in a unique fusion of therapies incorporating the energetic essences of plants to relieve tension and rejuvenate body, mind, and soul.
